La (WHAS11) -- A Louisiana man is facing murder charges after shooting a pastor to death while he was delivering a sermon.

Police say Pastor Ronald Harris was speaking at his church on Friday when Woodrow Karey rushed inside and shot him twice in front of Harris' wife and the congregation.

Local dispatch says Karey later called 911 and told them what he had done. Police are still trying to determine why he shot the pastor and why he later confessed.

Karey has no criminal history and police say he surrendered without incident. He is currently being held on $1 million bond.
